Center pivot irrigation systems create red circles of healthy vegetation in this image of croplands near Garden City, Kansas.This image was acquired by Landsat 7’s Enhanced Thematic Mapper plus (ETM+) sensor on September 25, 2000. This is a false-color composite image made using near infrared, red, and green wavelengths. The image has also been sharpened using the sensor’s panchromatic band.
